I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher. I'm having a really hard time getting the Start button to actually start the dishwasher. I have to keep pressing numerous times before the selected cycle light flashes indicating it has started. What parts do you think need to be replaced? All the other buttons appear to work normally...it's just the start button.
Answer Hello Jonathan,
As per the tech sheet that should be located behind the kick panel in a plastic bag:
CHECKING KEYPAD OPERATION
¦ Check keypad ribbon tail for broken/shorted/corroded/creased traces.
¦ Check for loose connection to control.
¦ Check for evidence of contaminants or corrosion around perimeter of the keypad, on the keypad ribbon tail and/or on the keypad connector at the control.
¦ Perform keypad function check.
¦ For a final check (if possible), try replacing control/keypad with a known good control/keypad to identify where problem(s) persist.
If no connection issues are located, this usually requires replacing the User Interface 8531262.
